Summary

The use of psychological interventions and counselling strategies has become a central part of injury prevention, rehabilitation and return to participation process. The Psychology of Sport and Performance Injury is the first book to offer students, academic scholars, and practitioners case studies that are grounded in psychological theory and empirical evidence, with a specific focus on addressing psychological aspects of sport and performance injuries in an interprofessional manner.

This book presents nine "real-life inspired" fictional sport and performance injury cases. It demonstrates the viability and effectiveness of adopting an interprofessional, person-centered approach to injury, rehabilitation, and return to participation process. Each case is focused on a particular phase of rehabilitation, with specific attention placed on relevant biopsychosocial concerns. Within each chapter, a theoretical, conceptual, and empirical analysis of the case is presented followed by detailed accounts on how a range of professionals and significant others can work alongside each other to provide a holistic care for the injured performer within their own competencies.

 

The Psychology of Sport and Performance Injury: An Interprofessional Case-Based Approach emphasizes the importance of holistic, interprofessional approach to sport and performance injury rehabilitation. This book is a vital resource for upper-level students, academic scholars, and applied practitioners from range of sport and performance related disciplines such as athletic training, kinesiology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, sport psychology, sports therapy, and strength and conditioning. It offers a valuable reading for a range of individuals and professionals who are involved in sport and performance injury prevention, rehabilitation, and return to participation process.
